Classroom Sets/Media Kits

Media kits are what we call classroom sets of books that can be borrowed free of charge to any library patron! This list is current as of early January 2018, but we are constantly adding new titles to our Media Kit collection. If there is a title that we don’t have, please let us know and we will do our best to fill your request (though it would likely take a month or two). We love to help Marion County Schools!

Note: To put a media kit on hold, contact any of our branches and we will arrange it! Most Media Kits are stored at the Fairview Public Library, but they can be sent to any branch for pickup.
